We require from buildings two kinds of goodness: first the doing their practical duty well: then that they be graceful and pleasing in doing it.
The great thing about celebrity culture is that they can't seem to stop themselves from displaying their ridiculous behaviour.

Obviously there's the seedy side of the strip club world and pole dancing. But pole dancing as an art form is really beautiful. It's been hyper-sexualized because it's associated with strippers but if you think about it just in terms of other kinds of dancing they're using an instrument to create these amazing dance forms.
I listen to every thing all kinds of stuff. I've been obsessed with the Nas and Damian Marley record 'Distant Relatives.' I feel like a lot of people haven't heard it and it's amazing.

Old age is not a disease - it is strength and survivorship triumph over all kinds of vicissitudes and disappointments trials and illnesses.
I love physical kinds of comedy and getting down and dirty and doing stunts. When I was growing up I was always getting into fights with guys and usually punching out boys my age because I was a lot bigger and tougher. So I'm naturally accustomed to putting myself into the headspace of a girl who can take care of herself.
